Nokia’s 2011 Calling All Innovators competition has ended and the winners have been announced. Over 800 entries were received from developers. Part of the judging criteria included the number of downloads and sales for each entry. Here’s the list of the winning apps and games. You might see something that you’ll like.
Nokia has an official video of Nokia Drop, but I thought you might like a demo on video from an unofficial source. It’s a brand new app from Nokia Beta Labs and I like it a lot! It’s a simple and easy way to push content to your device from your web browser. You can instantly change your phone’s wallpaper, send image as a file to your phone, send URL to your phone.
Here’s a quick and easy way to get the new Nokia Pure font on your Symbian device. Simply download and unzip the corresponding file for your phone, Symbian^3 or S60V3/5. Extract the files, then drag and drop it to your mass memory. It took me just a few seconds to do this on my Nokia E7. Enjoy!
Professional filmmakers record their audio separately to get better sound. They rarely use the built-in microphone from the camera. The files are usually synced in post-production. I wanted to try this myself. I recorded a video with my Nokia N8 and recorded the audio on a Zoom H1 with lavalier microphone. Syncing the two files was easy thanks to the desktop application called DualEyes.
JoikuSpot Premium is finally at the Ovi Store for Symbian^3 devices such as the Nokia N8, C7, and E7. For $9.99 you can turn your phone into a WiFi hotspot. Connect your iPad, laptop, or other devices to internet using your mobile phone as a 3G modem. There’s no need for a USB dongle, cable, or bluetooth connection. Watch the short video I made so you can see how it works on the Nokia N8.
I was pretty excited to hear that Swype showed up at the Ovi Store for Symbian^3 devices. It’s a keyboard replacement that I’m absolutely in love with on the Android platform and glad that it’s now available on the new Symbian^3 devices like the Nokia N8. If the app is not showing up at the Ovi Store for your N8, there’s a direct link for download.
Did you know that Nokia are showcasing some of the best apps from Ovi Store through interactive, clickable demos at one of their official blogs, Ovi Daily App? The tutorials are based on DeviceAnywhere’s DemoAnywhere solution, which allows consumers to interact with apps on virtual mobile phones via the Internet. They gave me a demo while I was at CTIA.
